STREET FOOD SATURDAYS RETURN TO TIVERTON MARKET – WITH ELECTRIC NIGHTS!
We are delighted to announce that the popular monthly street food events are returning to Tiverton Market under the new name “ELECTRIC NIGHTS”. These events offer a full range of tasty goods including quality street food and alcoholic beverages from local producers; fun evenings for all the family with live music and children’s activities.
Due to popular demand that these events continue at Tiverton Market, in February, we advertised dates for 2015 and received numerous responses from parties interested in running them.
The new organisers of Electric Nights have an excellent reputation across the South West as well as being a successful street food trader themselves. Due to these events’ previous success, the whole market will be utilised offering a bigger and better experience this year. Electric Nights aim to fulfil our vision for a fun vibrant community event in the centre of Tiverton.
The events will continue on the first Saturday of the month, beginning 6 June until 3 October 2015. A number of traders have already signed up to these events, including the popular “Le French Kitchen” with their Duck Burgers and Profiteroles. Further information, including details of all the traders and musicians, are available to view on our facebook page / twitter feed etc.
The organisers of the new ‘Electric Nights’ said “we are pleased to continue these events at Tiverton Market. It is a beautiful building in the centre of Tiverton, perfect for large community events in creating a fun vibe for all the family. We are offering a range of high quality and award winning food showcasing the excellent talent in the local area. There will be plenty of alcoholic drinks from local breweries to enjoy as well as soft drinks for our younger guests! A range of local bands have signed up to perform at Electric Nights and we are looking to work with local businesses to expand these events into the wider town.
Kevin Finan, Chief Executive of Mid Devon District Council, said “it is a priority that our town centres thrive. We are excited to work in partnership with Electric Nights to ensure these events meet public demand and support local trade – both in the town and in the surrounding rural areas. We are offering FREE PARKING in the Market Car Park and William Street Car Park in Tiverton from 5:00pm – 11:00pm on these nights.
Tiverton Market is the ideal location for these events, being in the centre of town with good access and amenities. We hope that these events will benefit the wider town and offer Tiverton a fun community event that supports our local economy. These events attract new visitors to the town and are the perfect opportunity to showcase what Tiverton can offer”.
We look forward to welcoming everyone to the first Electric Nights event at Tiverton Pannier Market on Saturday 6 June from 5:30pm.
